Sensory processing is the neurology of how we feel. The sensory messages we receive from our bodies and the world around us are responded to in everything we do in life. In each instance our sensory systems contribute vital information that we use to be successful. We couldn’t do these things without our sensory systems.
Our ability to process sensory data does not usually require conscious thought or cognitive effort. It provides emotional stability, a platform for social interaction, a sense of self, well-being, satisfaction and/or accomplishment. Sensory processing can also influence every area of living including our preferences in diet, exercise, relationships, career, and our hobbies.
